they haven't seen their latest polling. since the nra press conference featuring wayne la pierre calling for armed patrols in schools amid protest signs reading the nra has blood on its hands, a new poll shows the gun group's favorability has seen a ten-point negative swing. when have gun rights advocates cared about public perception? despite the recent shootings and bipart sfwlan calls for reform in the nation's gun laws, a coalition of firearms groups are pushing forward with gun appreciation day on the mlk holiday weekend this year. today vice president joe biden's gun violence task force is holding martin luther king reply meeting, including one currently underway with sportsmen and wildlife interest groups. later biden has invited the nra and wal-mart as well. the task force is talking about a range of responses to the newtown shooting including circumventing congress if they won't play ball. >> the president is going to take a look at executive action that can be taken. we don't know what that is yet. we're compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and all the rest of
political editor mark murray. mark, explain the coverage of this so far. i think "the l.a. times" called an evolution, not a revolution and what some people anticipated what might come. >> well, in the filibuster reform taken off as a measure of democrats, from liberaling who were very frustrated by the change of pace in the u.s. senate. throughout its history, the united states senate has been the world's greatest deliberative body and sometimes they deliberate a little bit too long but the white house actually said that they supported the modest measures and it depends on where you are on the united states senate. sometimes when people want quick action now, those people were disappointed but if you believe in evolutional or gradual change as president obama sometimes does, you would end up taking that half or a third of a loaf. >> okay. so progressives, though, certainly have not had a good time hearing about this and specifically coming out and being very stern in reaction to harry reid. take a listen to rachel maddow. >> wow, harry reid, yeah. this is the day everybody was looking f
is how sort of loaded they were with ideas that were proposed by ideas like la pierre who called for a mental health database. they provide carrots to have federal agencies do a better job providing for mental health information to go into the background system. there is a lot of lower hanging fruit in the ideas he put forward that could have bipartisan support. >> pointing out the background checks, i think the odds are according to a couple of blocks, about 75%, they see it below 50% to get the assault weapons passed of any kind. at least some movement if possible on a few of those ideas. here we are the day before the president made this announcement of what to expect with executive action and the laws he would want congress to pursue. you have this nra ad that is going after the president's daughters in an inappropriate matter. this came before the president's remarks today. >>> the president's kids more important than yours? why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? >> the nra said whoever thi
as it becomes available. >>> many are still reacting to president obama's immigration policy speech in las vegas yesterday where he stated that now is the time to fix what he called a broken system. republican lawmakers are warning there's only so farther willing to compromise on the issue. tracie potts is live in washington with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. at this point moving forward, both sides need to reconcile these plans, the president's and the ones lawmakers pitched. while the goals seem to be the same, what we're not clear on at this point are the the details. >> now is the time. >> reporter: starting today lawmakers begin to sort out differences between their immigration plan and president obama's like how long will it take for people liveing here illegal to become citizens. >> some people have been here for 20 or 30 years in limbo. >> it won't be a quick process. >> reporter: five years is enough but lawmakers want to make sure the borders are secure first. that could take longer. >> if this becomes a bidding war to see who comes up with with the easiest, quickest p
to terrorists, it does not extend to criminals, and it does not extend to the mentally ill. >> while wayne lapierre struck a posture less combative than previous press conferences, his views remain questionable, calling for an immediate blanket of security at schools, lapierre dismissed universal background checks, saying criminals would never submit to them. chairman leahy pressed lapierre on background checks and whether and how the nra head had changed his mind on closing gun show loopholes. >> should we have mandatory background checks at gun shows for sales of weapons? >> if you're a dealer, that's already a law. >> that's not my question, please, mr. lapierre, i'm not trying to play games here, but if you could, it would help, just answer my question. >> senator, i do not believe the way the law is working now, unfortunately, that it does any good to extend the law to private sales between hobbyists and collectors. >> so, you do not support mandatory background checks at all in instances at gun shows? >> we do not, because the fact is, the law right now is a failure the way it's working
will appear on the panel several weeks after they will launch an official lobbying effort called americans for responsible solutions. their group again reminded congress last night on their facebook page that after a string of mass shootings, that congress has failed to act on guns. also taking on lapierre today will be california senator dianne feinstein who has called the nra venal and repeated her criticism yesterday. >> they have fought virtually every kind of regulation. the time has come to change course. >> but her new assault weapons ban faces long odds in the senate and though she said she believes the democratic votes are there for it, even the committee's chairman patrick leahy who voted for the 1994 version of the ban has declined to endorse it this time around. >> the assault weapon ban, did it work? we ought to ask that question. you know, i'm not looking for something that's symbolic. i'm looking for something that makes people safer. >> and then there's senate majority leader harry reid who clearly decided not to endorse it again yesterday. >> she believes in it fervently.
. and where a call for action can now be heard coming from all across america. now's the time. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was president obama in las vegas yesterday where he laid out his vision for immigration reform. the president's approach is very similar to what a bipartisan group of eight senators called for earlier this week. now the question is can something get done? will republicans in the house be willing to vote yes on a bill that includes a pathway to citizenship for millions of immigrants who are in this country illegally? that could be a hard sell. many republicans say president obama is all too happy to let the issue fester and watch as their party continues to struggle with hispanic voters. however, politico's mike allen says that doesn't pass the political smell test. quote kwb this is one of the few political mysteries that has an unambiguously correct answer. top demes tell us if president obama is going to have a big legacy accomplishment this term, it has to be immigration. so he's making an historic test of whether the campaign machinery can translate to governin
, or call 855-878-4biz. >>> developing now, president obama about to arrive in las vegas where he's expected to embrace the senate's bipartisan principles on immigration reform. the president will head to high school right outside the city described as a large latino population at the school. the president is scheduled to speak in about half an hour. we'll bring you the remarks. meantime, nbc news first read team notes that this is an important test for senator rubio. he spent several days selling comprehensive immigration to conservatives and it may be a tough one. here's more of what senator rubio had to say within the past hour with rush limbaugh. >> so i know this is a tough issue. i do. i know why people are uncomfortable about it. it doesn't feel right in some instances to allow people undocumented and to stay here and this is a tough issue to work through. i know the president takes us in a direction i would not be comfortable with and i'm trying to do the best i can with what's already a tough situation. >> joining me now, nbc news senior political editor mark murray. mark, you and y
americans. >> that's positive. let's look at what he had to say. he came out for what he calls comprehensive immigration reform. it was at a speech in las vegas. he said the bipartisan plan put forward by eight senators was in line with the principles he's for which is very interesting. bipartisan approach. let's listen. here he is. >> but the principles are pretty straightforward. first, i believe we need to stay focused on enforcement. that means continuing to strengthen security at our borders. it means cracking down more forcefully on businesses that knowingly hire undocumented workers. we need to implement a national system that allows businesses to quickly and accurately verify someone's employment status. second, we have to deal with the 11 million individuals who are here illegally. we all agree that these men and women should have to earn their way to citizenship. but for comprehensive immigration reform to work, it must be clear from the outset that there is a pathway to citizenship. >> okay. your strength is in politics. went to a largely hispanic high school in las vegas -- >> yo
. >> it wouldn't be a quick process, but will be a fair process. >> the so-called embrace of immigration reform, but not so fast. >> why are we doing this? the president is in las vegas today. >> back in las vegas. >> he imposes enforcement. >> i believe we need to stay focused on enforcement. >> democrats are not interested in border security. >> that means to continue to strengthen the border security. members of the parties are working on a solution. >> where is the common ground? i don't see it. >> the path to citizenship is a long and arduous one. >> we have to enact a comprehensive immigration reform. >> we are committed to a comprehensive approach. >> i think we're all out there alone folks. >> the question is now simple. do we have the resolve? i believe that we do. i believe that we do. >> president obama went to a high school today in what used to be mexico, las vegas, nevada, to urge congress to overhaul the immigration system. >> today i'm laying out my ideas for immigration reform. and my hope is that this provides some key markers to members of congress as they craft a bill. becau
debate. >> a call for an end to ideological intransigence and refusals to compromise was in wayne lapierre's estranged distorted view on an attempt to deface the constitution. >> obama wants to turn the idea of absolutism into a dirty word, just another word for extremism. he wants you, all of you, and americans throughout all of this country, to accept the idea of principles as he sees fit. when absolutes are abandoned for principles, the u.s. constitution becomes a blank slate for anyone's graffiti. >> just to clarify, absolutism, good. principles, bad. hugo, every time wayne lapierre comes out, i think he can't possibly top what he said last time, and yet -- >> that's the best you've seen from wayne lapierre. >> when you stand on principles, the u.s. constitution becomes a blank slate that you can deface with your own ideological graffiti. >> right, sort of gets the urban blight kind of spectacle there, people coming at you. >> loaded metaphors. >> right, right. >> we were talking about this during the break, this, apparently, is a working strategy for the nra. >> it's working for
jansing. and right now the president is in the air, flying to las vegas. this afternoon, in a major speech, he will tackle immigration reform. not getting it passed is something he calls the biggest regret of his first term. now, first, he is expected to praise a bipartisan group of senators who presented their plan yesterday. >> a set of principles put forward by this bipartisan group, embraces the path to citizenship. this is a big deal. this is an important development. >> but it appears these eight senators didn't want to follow the president's big speech, so they raced to make their announcement first. and late word this morning that the president, not wanting to rock the boat, will embrace the senate plan. now, whatever the timing, it could be a changing electorate that really is going to help get results. >> the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there's more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. >> elections. elections. the republican party is losing the support of our hispanic citizens. and we realize that t

thing here. when you have wayne la pierre and david keene saying these crazy things, it compromises the negotiating position of people who do have an argument against certain restrictions. >> do you agree with that, meagan? >> i think there's a great theory called the baptist and -- where you have on the one hand the bootleggers love prohibition because it's great for business, and the baptists like prohibition because they're idealogically against it. >> it's great for your business. >> for the nra, look, this is how they fundraise. i guarantee that letter brought money pouring in. if you have seen what has happened to the gun market since newtown, you can't get high capacity magazines for love or money. i have not tested this personally, but i hear. guns are flying off the shelves. it's true that they don't do themselves a lot of good with the american public. >> maybe with their own party. that's -- business is different -- i mean, if you are listening to glen's point, and i only sort of listen to every other word, but the notion is they have to bargain over this. >> it's good fo
